Treat Yourself to a Truly Extraordinary Massage Experience!
Over the last decade I have given thousands of massages, taken over 1,000 hours of continuing education, had over 3,000 students come to one of my massage courses and along side of all of that my massage has evolved exponentially into something truly wonderful....
The underlying flows that I use for all of my massage and bodywork are my Primal Flow, Deep Lomi Style and Thai/Lomi Fusion Techniques. I developed my Deep Lomi Style by studying styles like Esalen®, Tantsu® and the elegant full body Hawaiian Lomi styles. Then I slowed them down, made the work deeper and replaced any routines with my intuition. I don't just use my hands to create my Deep Lomi Style, I also use my forearms, elbows, triceps and even my shoulders, knees and feet to facilitate extremely long and luxurious strokes that integrate the entire body and do not force me to work on specific areas in isolation of others.
The result was a massage unlike any other you have ever experienced....
Then I add some of the most therapeutic and relaxing techniques in existence from all over the world. Including traditional and table based Thai Massage and Thai Yoga as well as techniques from various sports massage and relaxation response modalities.
The result was an intoxicatingly relaxing massage that was also profoundly challenging and clinically effective...
Then I was introduced to Phenomenal Touch Massage® and it changed just about everything! It allowed me to slow down even more, listen deeper and work with clearer intentions. Phenomenal Touch® helped me to meet my clients on much deeper and more significant levels. Most importantly, it cleared the way so I could finally find and follow the body's primal flows.
The result is something truly magical that has to be experienced to be believed!
My Massage is...
In my Deep Lomi and Primal Flow sessions I use my hands, forearms, elbows, triceps and even my shoulders to facilitate extremely long and luxurious full-body strokes that integrate the entire body and do not force me to work on specific areas in isolation of others. I literally work on your entire body at the same time for the entire time and I am often more focused on your nervous system than any particular muscle...which gives you an amazing full body massage experience.
My Primal Flow is profoundly relaxing while at the same time being profoundly deep. This is because by following the primal flow and needs of your body, you get exactly what you need. Each massage is tailored to your needs for that session so that you can have the best massage experience possible. No two massages are exactly the same, even with the same client. Every massage gets a little better than the last one as your body begins to trust the process and lets go a little more....
My Primal Flow and Deep Lomi Massage is designed so that your relaxation is so complete that you surrender physically, mentally and emotionally, which allows your body to move beyond the limits that it would otherwise adhere to. Anticipation is replaced with acceptance. Muscle guarding is greatly reduced, if not completely eliminated and then the magic really happens. There are these moments where you are transported to a place of complete relaxation and surrender.
One of the best outcomes of my style of massage is that is extremely effective physically, neurologically and even emotionally. My Primal Flow and Deep Lomi Flows combined with some of the best therapeutic tissue mobilization techniques has several profound effects on the neuromuscular system; decreasing muscle tension and spasm, increasing range of motion in the joints and breaking the neuro-physical and neuro-emotional patterns that we tend to hold on so tightly to...but I do not have to traumatize your body to get the results that you want.
Deep Lomi Massage
This is my first massage & bodywork creation. It is one of the main things that separates my work us from just about any other massage experience you can find. My Deep Lomi Massage is generous, lavish and extremely effective. It truly has to be experienced to be understood.
Shock and Awe meets Ooh and Ahh! Although originally performed on the floor, I integrate powerful Thai Massage based Stretching and Compression techniques into my table based sessions in order to provide you with one of the most dynamic and effective massages possible.
Nurturing Touch Massage and Bodywork focuses on much more than muscular and neural physiology. It goes much deeper than therapeutic massage and incorporates other healing modalities and energies as well. It is a much deeper level of touch. Slower, more luxurious and with more intentional communication that you are important, safe and deserve to really relax. Read More...
I use cupping therapy a little different than most traditional cupping practitioners. First of all, I use Soft Silicone Cups for my cupping instead of fire cupping with glass cups. Second, I incorporate cupping directly into my massage and move the cups right along with my massage strokes. This allows me to leverage the complementary benefits derived from creating a localized vacuum (negative pressure) with the benefits derived from manual tissue manipulation (positive pressure), joint manipulation and relaxation work.

FAQs and Thoughts
It is nearly impossible to describe my work in words. You need to experience my work to understand it. This is because it is so many things at the same time and my work changes so much from person to person. My Primal Flow and Deep Lomi Massage is profoundly relaxing while at the same time being very deep. Each massage is tailored to each individual client so that you can have the best massage experience possible. No two massages are exactly the same, even with the same client. Every massage is better than the last one. A little more relaxing, a little deeper here a little lighter there….
I recommend at least 90 minutes for a really good, full body massage. This is primarily because it is just too hard to do the full body justice in only an hour. However, I will warn you that once you have tried a 90 minutes session, it is very difficult to ever feel satisfied with a 60 minute session. Many of my clients get regular 2 hour massages and some enjoy my 3 hour massage/relaxation experience. That being said, if you only have an hour available for your massage I will do my best to make it one of the best hours of your life!
I allow plenty of time after your massage for you to linger in the bliss of your massage experience. To extend and deepen your relaxation. You can just relax on the table in my very warm and comfortable massage room, enjoy a hot shower or even take an Epsom salt bath in a private bathroom. I have found that many of my clients have significantly appreciated this extra time and that they have had very meaningful experiences during this time as well.
Quality vs Quantity
I limit the number of massages that I give each day to make sure that you get the best massage experience possible. I usually do not do more than two or three massages a day, every now and then I might do four, but that is a rare day. The reason that I do this is because I put a lot of effort, physical and mental, into every massage to make it the best experience possible and that just is not going to happen if I am giving eight massages a day…
Draping and Modesty
The draping for my Deep Lomi massage is less modest than the draping that most conventional western massage therapists are using. This is because a I work on several different parts of the body at the same time, not just specific areas in isolation. For example; when you are on your stomach the back, sides of the glutes and the legs will be uncovered so the therapist can work all of them together. Please take a look at the draping guidelines page as well as my New Client Intake Form for more information.
Full Chest and Breast
